Help the most defenceless animals from home

The meat industry hides pigs, cows, chickens and other animals that are killed for human consumption from us, making them almost invisible. 

Although they feel and suffer just like other animals, they are the least protected. Fortunately, they can count on you!

Join Animal Protectors, Animal Equality’s digital volunteer group, and help end the suffering they are forced to endure on farms and at slaughterhouses by:

  • Promoting laws that tackle the worst cruelty
  • Helping to share the hidden realities of life on farms and slaughterhouses with the world 
  • Inspire people to leave animals off their plates

All this can be achieved through simple online actions that will be sent straight to your inbox! You can complete these tasks from the comfort of your home using a mobile phone or computer, taking only 5 minutes out of your day:

  • Sign petitions
  • Send emails to UK politicians
  • Tell the authorities what you think on social media

Animals need you. Sign up today!

Do you have questions? We have the answers!

Why are Animal Equality and Animal Protectors primarily dedicated to protecting animals on farms and slaughterhouses?


Every year in the world more than 70 billion farmed land animals are bred and killed for human consumption. This number does not include farmed fish. But despite these alarming statistics, farmed animals are often forgotten and donations made to help them account for less than 1% of all donations to animal charities. 

By supporting Animal Equality, you will help us create a world where they don’t have to suffer.

What do I need to do to be part of Animal Protectors?


All you need to do is complete the registration form and that’s it, you’re already part of the team! You will start receiving emails with extremely simple and effective online actions to help animals immediately, like signing petitions or contacting politicians.

How do the actions of Animal Protectors help animals?


They expose the truth of the cruel and abusive treatment of animals inside farms and slaughterhouses. Through this, they inspire people to take animals off their plates, they motivate major companies to say no to cages for hens and take other actions to raise their animal welfare standards, and put pressure on the Government to pass laws to protect animals.

Can I also support street actions?


The advantage of being an Animal Protector is that most of the actions you will take are online, so you can help animals no matter where you are! On occasion, we also attend in-person, peaceful events – sign up and you’ll be the first one to know when the next one is.


The volunteers of Animal Equality UK have the responsibility to act according to the values of the organisation. By registering as an Animal Protector with Animal Equality UK, you agree to act with respect, responsibility and integrity at all times, and to abide by the instructions provided by the Animal Equality UK staff. You also agree to conduct all activities in a peaceful, non-violent manner, refraining from any kind of harassment, making threats or any illegal activities.
